Two arrests, at least three rehab stints and countless embarrassing moments later, Kim Richards finally made her grand return to reality TV after being fired from RHOBH this spring. But did she stay sober? has all the inside details.

As Radar reported, Richards was on hand for a season finale party at sister Kyle Richards' La Quinta, Calif. home near Palm Springs over Halloween weekend. Housewives Lisa Rinna, Camille Grammer, and Lisa Vanderpump were also in attendance.

According to an insider, "Kyle threw the party since it was going to be the last time the ladies would all be together before the reunion is filmed several months from now."

"It was the first time in nearly a year that Kim and Lisa Rinna have been in the same room together," the source explained. "Lisa was happy to see Kim because she had been concerned about all of her legal problems lately."

But there was no wine throwing this time.

"Kim and Lisa spoke quietly in a corner," the insider said. "These two will never be close, but Lisa wanted to put their beef behind them once and for all. For the rest of the party, Kim was very, very quiet. There was no drinking or bizarre behavior."

Unceremoniously fired from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after her arrests and rehab stints, Richards had been MIA from filming this season until Bravo got desperate for some last-minute drama.

Kim and her sister Kyle famously battled last season on RHOBH, effectively ending their relationship for months, but the siblings buried the hatchet to film the reality show once more.

Kim and Kyle have also been "working on repairing their fractured relationship," the source added. "Kim is sober and is coming to grips with all of the havoc she caused. Kyle is forgiving, but a lot has gone down that she just won't be to forgive."

But it wasn't a total snoozefest: The party did have explosive fireworks between Rinna and another cast member.

The insider revealed, "Viewers will be shocked at Lisa Rinna's feud with another one of the ladies. It gets very intense, and fans will be forced to choose sides."
